The following Wednesday, Newland's plans to go to Washington are postponed by a crisis in  Beaufort's business affairs. Scandal has caused a run on the bank and Julius Beaufort is anathema.  Much talk is heard about "poor Regina" and how "her duty is at his side." In the midst of all this,  Newland receives a message from May to come to old Catherine Mingott's because Catherine has  had a slight stroke. Upon arriving he discovers that Regina Beaufort visited Mrs. Mingott the night before, appealing to  her to stand by the Beauforts with family loyalty. Humorously, Newland's father-in-law is in bed and  will probably stay there, allowing the ladies to handle this problem. Newland listens to the family  discussion and agrees with them that "in the old days," husband and wife shared the same disgrace.  Mrs. Mingott has requested Ellen's presence and Newland must arrange a telegram. May and her

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
